Coast hotels and casinos are filling up fast for New Year’s celebrations
Hotels and casinos along the Coast are filling up with out-of-town guests for the upcoming New Year’s holiday.
Biloxi City Councilman Kenny Glavan, who is president of the Mississippi Hotel and Lodging Association, says rooms started filling up right after Christmas.
With the Sugar Bowl being played right down the road in New Orleans, fans heading to the game are also booking hotels here.
Another reason is that some people are also trying to get away to warmer climates and South Mississippi is an ideal place for that. “We are not only in recovery from COVID-19, but the Gulf Coast seems to work its way through the inflation fears and we are designing events to celebrate and to showcase what we are all about.”
Glavan says this is a great sign for the Coast’s tourism industry as we ring in the new year.
